"About four years ago, I really concentrated on a new stretch fabric and unusual novelty-decorated sportswear because I didn’t see much of that in the market," Phillipe reflected. "Our customer is 25 to 75 and she wants to look special and be noticed. She feels like a movie star whether she is a size 16 or a size 2." The award came as a big surprise to Phillipe, even though she has seen her Dallas business grow considerably over the past year. "It feels heavenly," she sighed. " We are so honored to have won this, you have no idea."
